Historical Context:
Local Michigan glass artist Frederick Warren first began experimenting with opaque silver glass while training under Boyce Lundstrom in the 1970s. Lundstrom, known by many as the father of the contemporary fused glass movement, was working on a new kiln fired glass technique that allowed sheets of glass to be fused together without breaking, creating layers of color within the glass. Using this technique, Warren added other materials such as silver and copper to create an entirely new look to glass. What resulted is a smooth and opaque but shiny glass such as this bowl.
